Maxine Waters

When He Attacks One of Us, He Attacks All of Us

Congresswoman Maxine Waters has been a fierce advocate for LGBTQ equality long before the nation came to know and love her as “Auntie Maxine,” the fierce leader of the resistance against Donald Trump. In 1996, she spoke out and voted against the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) that allowed states to deny recognition of same-sex marriages (before it was struck down by Supreme Court in 2013). Congresswoman Waters then led the effort to create the Minority AIDS Initiative, a federal program that since 1999 has funded organizations working to reduce the spread of HIV in black, Latino, and other minority populations, and improve health outcomes among those living with HIV or AIDS. When it comes to Congresswoman Waters’ support for the LGBT community, she has the receipts!
